Small business owners can often feel like they are floating like a bottle cap in an ocean. The work is hard. The hours are long, and motivation and drive can run thin.

Take a few moments and be refreshed by these encouraging statistics touting the ever-hard-working small business owners we have in our own backyard, and go out and support one today!
